October 2014

The recent working bee saw members working hard to tidy up the garden as the focus turned to weeding and mulching between the beds. The garden looked much better at the end of the morning, thanks to the efforts of those involved. Members are also working to establish a second flower patch near the entrance to the garden to further encourage bees and insects into the area.

The community beds are growing well and provided an abundance of fresh produce as we harvested strawberries, broad beans, peas, silverbeet and chinese spinach to share among the members. Thoughts are now turning to the next rotation of beds.

The Community Garden was represented at the Concord Carnival and offered local residents the opportunity to win a hamper of organically grown produce. Representatives were available to discuss what’s on offer at the Garden and to promote this great facility. Residents were encouraged to visit the garden and see what was on offer.
